Tag and TIOT reminder

Hi All. Nice to have you call in and thank you for your support at Jumbled Crafts.

This week at Tag Tuesday the theme is Shoes, Hats and Bags

I just happened to have a shoe catalogue handy and it had bags as well though the hat was from something else. Not a clue why I added the upside down baby or the heart-must have been a senior moment.

At Try it on Tuesday we have the theme Book Pages for another week so I hope you will join in and make anything you like so long as it has a book page or part of one on it.

I made a front cover for a journal.

It started life as a photograph album

The pages had photo corners on them so Vic took them off for me to use the pages to paint on

The paper is really nice and there is a cover for each page as well which will be useful if the paint is still wet when I close the journal.

I did a lot of paper piecing for the background then used Distressed inks to colour it. Cut out shapes for the head and shoulders then found things from magazines for the face and hair.

Hope you will join us

Have a great day all

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Wonderful tag and a very unique cover for your photo album, I am sure you will have fun painting in it. Have a lovely day, the sun is shining here, so that's nice. Hugs, Valerie

  2. Fab tag but my favourite is your journal cover Chrissie that's wonderful and happy!
    Happy Tuesday... Gill xx

  3. Wow Chrissie, the cover looks fantastic, it must have taken you ages to piece all the papers. Her face is so expressive and I love the flowers for her hair. It looks like hand made paper in the journal?
    Its a super collaged tag as well, I had to have another look to notice the upside down baby.
